Arabic and Hebrew languages both share the same the semitic roots. Over time, as with English, alphabet letters, meanings, pronunciations and spellings have changed. Of all the times “blessing” is intended the word generally used is “barak”, “yivrechu” “yevarech” or some other variant of “barak.” and the hebrew translation for his first name: BARACH (Bar Rach) - To kneel, to bless, to adore with bended knee. When used by man in reference to God, it means to endure with power for success, prosperity and long life. In Psalm 34:2, barach is translated as BLESS and in Psalm 103:1-2, barach is translated to mean WORSHIP.
